Router is recognized, but the internet is not working


Hello, everyone.

I am facing a predicament in SUSE OSS 10.0. After many hours of research, I have made 'ping 192.168.1.1' work - it pings successfully. However, I am fairly sure that it is doing this through the wlan1 interface, although I have no way of confirming. Here are the results of iwconfig (manually copied):
Quote:
wlan0:
Link Quality: 0
Signal Level: 0
Noise Level: 0
wlan1:

Link Quality: 100/100
Signal Level: -52 dBm
Noise Level: -256 dBm
As you can see, the wlan1 interface is working, but the wlan0 is not. I have no idea how the ping works in this particular case, but I am glad that it at least pings.

The internet interface for me is KInternet. I use DSL internet, but I do not know how to configure KInternet to work.

Basically, although 'ping 192.168.1.1' works, 'ping http://google.com' does not. Can someone please point me in the right direction?

Thank you for the assistance.

Hi,

Are you sure your router is connected to your DSL connection properly? Sometimes it's a simple as the router being disconnected from the internet, a cable being unplugged, or setting typed in incorrectly..

If you can ping the router but not outside it, then it could be one of two things (off the top of my head):

1) Router is not connected to the internet.

2) You have the wrong DNS settings. To verify this, check the file /etc/resolv.conf - that should have the same DNS addresses as your router or other computers on the network. If it does not, then you may need to change them manually.

HTH,

The router is connected to the internet - I can access the internet from a laptop on the wireless network using Windows XP. In addition, the nameservers in /etc/resolv.conf are the same as those on the laptop (confirmed by ipconfig /all). I can't seem to think of why it is not working.

KInternet seems to be the problem, although I am guessing at this. Since I can ping the router, it isn't a problem with ndiswrapper or anything related to the interface wlan1 itself. How can I disable wlan0 so that I can guarantee that only wlan1 is being used?

Also, I have multiple network cards connected to my computer. Could this be the problem? One of them is PCIMIA, the other is USB. The card that is working is USB.

In addition, whenever I log out/restart/shutdown, the wlan1 settings are erased and I have to re-enter them. How can I fix this?

EDIT: I got the connection to the internet, but I don't know how I did it. The settings are still erased on restart.

To turn off wlan0, type 'sudo ifdown wlan0' into a terminal window.

I'm not sure why the wireless settings are reset on reboot.. Maybe someone else can help you there

Cheers,

Something bad happened after a system-wide upgrade with YOU, and now the internet has broken again. modprobe ndiswrapper is now an 'Operation now permitted.' Does this happen to anyone? Wlan1 is no longer shown when iwconfig is executed.
